Past & present Wolves gathered on the day after Thanksgiving (Friday, Nov 22, 2018) for the annual "Alumni Game" at Worthington Kilbourne. About 30 players total suited up to play including graduates who played at Notre Dame, Penn State, UMBC, Denison and more. Also there were graduates who served in the United States Navy.
Beyond the fun, the reminiscing, trying to recreate a highlight goal and of course the game, there were life lessons and advice shared. Coach Riffee asked the alumni to share some advice with the current players. Included in the advice were:
1. Get good grades
2. Don't be afraid of hard work
3. Make yourself better in everything you do
4. Play multiple sports
5. Don't focus on just lacrosse
The alumni game is a proud tradition for Kilbourne Lacrosse that bridges the past and present players but also helps guide our high school student athletes as they navigate towards life ahead.
Thanks to all the alumni who made it out the the game! If you missed this year, make sure to mark your calendars for the day after Thanksgiving 2019 and we'll see you there!
